Green Therapy was founded by Bryce Coulter in 2011 to craft bespoke, outdoor spaces that enhance the lives of our clients

We connect with each client on a personal journey, unique to their needs and desires:

                                                             Spaces to connect with friends & family.

                                                                   Spaces to reconnect with nature.

       

                                                                          Spaces to grow and create.

 

                                                                            Spaces to relax and enjoy.

 

 

We enhance landscapes and gardens throughout Canterbury and Central Otago.

95% of our work is driven by word of mouth. We pride ourselves on ensuring we maintain our exceptional reputation, providing every client with total satisfaction throughout the entire process, from concept to completion.
 

Here's what some of our customers have said about us...

"I can’t thank you enough for the fantastic work you and your team have done in taking my property from shingle /weed /devastation to green paradise."

G. Peek

Mt Pleasant

"The garden looks wonderful and exceeded our expectations, they were a really great team of people to deal with."

W&D Cusson

Opawa

"I’m loving my garden...thx to all of you. It really is Green Therapy... I can’t tell you how good it is for my soul to look out of every window now and see a beautiful garden! Amazing!"

J. Murray

Huntsbury

"We have lived happily in our 115year old villa for 20years and this summer, so far, has been a particular joy for us to immerse ourselves in the space which Bryce, Laure, Alyesha, Curtis & Hugh created for us, a couple of months ago. Their combined vision, knowledge, practical skills and willingness to transform vague hopes & dreams into our new garden reality. After such a short time, without unnecessary disruption for us, their hard work and engaging personalities left us with results which exceeded our expectations. Their extraordinary ability to listen, offer ideas and leave us with such a pretty, restful and low-maintenance garden is the best example of therapy for anyone who treasures what nature has to offer. Coming seasons will be constant reminders of how glad we are to have chosen the Green Therapy team."
